THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS

Whatever you might be going through stop beating your head against a brick wall. Turn every battle over to God. Check out what God did in response to Jehoshaphat’s  major dilemma in 2 Chronicles 20:14-15, “Then in the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph; and he said, “Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the LORD to you, ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God! You see Jehoshaphat faced a multitude of enemies. Instead of focusing on what he would do, he prayed; He turned it over to God and God responded. So today remember you are a victor and not a victim. After God put the whooping on those boys God turned their battlefield into the Valley of Berachah. Berachah means “blessings”. The children of Israel gave the battlefield this name because it took them three days to gather all the spoils of war! God turned their situation into a great blessing and if He did it for them, He is able to do it for you!  (2 Chronicles 20:25–26)
